Ravena makes noise after quiet stint vs Japan

Kiefer Ravena may be the youngest player in the Gilas Pilipinas roster, but he showed on Monday that he can already hang with the big boys.

Ravena was vital in the Philippines’ comeback victory over Chinese Taipei as he was part of the second group that got the team going after trailing by as much as 14 points early in the game.

National team coach Chot Reyes wasn’t suprised with Ravena’s showing considering that the 24-year-old guard already has vast international experience.

“I’m not surprised because Kiefer is already ripe. He was a part of that second group, that energy group that really gave us a lift and got us back in the ball game,” said Reyes.

Ravena, the second overall pick in the 2017 PBA Rookie Draft collected nine points, five assists, two rebounds, and a steal as he and his fellow substitutes June Mar Fajardo and Calvin Abueva sparked Gilas’ rally.
